Fate of the Furious

When I saw Fast 5, I was charmed by the Fast & the Furious franchise. I watched all the movies to catch up with the “story” before I watched Fast & the Furious 6. Having said that Fate of the Furious just wasn’t fun. I take issue with the treatment of characters in this movie. […]
